Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) has announced that the company will supply 310 wind turbines of different types for five projects in the US with a combined capacity of 784 MW. With various output ratings and rotor diameters, the projects feature both Siemens and Gamesa technology of the recently merged company. Together, these five onshore wind projects will have the potential to provide clean energy to nearly 240,000 U.S. homes. The new orders will leverage U.S. manufacturing facilities and place the new, integrated company, in a stronger position to challenge its rivals.

Microsoft Commits To Clean Energy. Signs Major Power Supply Deal With Vattenfall

Microsoft has signed a ten-year agreement to power its international data centre operations in the Netherlands, with Vattenfall. The deal is the largest in the sector – based entirely on wind power. Production at the Wieringermeer Wind Farm, Netherlands is due to start from 2019. “Investing in local clean energy to power our local data centre is a win-win for our business and the Netherlands. Microsoft is committed to bringing new renewable energy sources online to power our data centres,” said Brian Janous, general manager of energy at Microsoft. The Wind Farm will eventually include 100 windmills, producing approximately 1.3 TWh of renewable electricity, comparable to the consumption of around 370,000 households.

Construction Starts On Horns Rev 3, Denmark’s Largest Offshore Wind Farm

Construction is commencing on Denmark’s largest offshore wind farm, the 406 MW Horns Rev 3. Vattenfall won the contract for its construction in 2015 and is installing the first of a total of 49 foundations in the North Sea. It is the first time in five years that an offshore wind farm will be built in Denmark and when Horns Rev 3 is complete, it will provide enough power to satisfy the annual electricity consumption of 425,000 Danish households. The 8.3 MW turbines are 187 metres high and have a rotor diameter of 164 metres. They are manufactured by MHI Vestas and are today one of the world’s most powerful wind turbines.
